Do chores after sex
In the name of Allah, We praise Him, seek His help and ask
for His forgiveness. Whoever Allah guides none can misguide, and whoever
He allows to fall astray, none can guide them aright. We bear witness that
there is none worthy of worship but Allah Alone, and we bear witness that
Muhammad (saws) is His slave-servant and the seal of His Messengers.
Ghusl or full bath for purity
after sex is not obligatory for a person to be able to cook, or eat, or leave
the house, or do any other deed except visiting the mosques, prayer, and the
recitation of the Quran.
Although it is highly recommended that one purify oneself
immediately after sexual intercourse, there is evidence and allowance in the
Sunnah if one wishes to sleep, eat, or drink or do other chores before
purifying oneself, one must at least do the ‘wudu’ or ablution.
If one does not perform the
ghusl immediately after sex for any reason, it would be better and purer to
perform the wudu (ablution) and go about ones chores or duties, and perform the ghusl later when one intends
to pray or recite the Quran.
Sahih Muslim Hadith 603 Narrated by Aisha
Abdullah ibn AbdulQays said, "I asked
Aisha about the Witr (prayer) of the Messenger of Allah (saws) and made mention
of a hadith, then I said: ‘What did he (saws) do after having sexual
intercourse? Did he take a bath before going to sleep or did he sleep before
taking a bath?’ She said: ‘He (saws) did
all these. Sometimes he (saws) took a bath and then slept, and sometimes he (saws)
performed ablution only and went to sleep.’ I (the narrator) said: ‘Praise be to Allah Who
has made things easy (for the believers in the deen).’
Your Question: also
wanted to know if there is any specific dua to say while taking ghusl for
intercourse and menstruation please do let me knw.
Other than making intention in one’s heart that one
intends to perform the ‘ghusl’ to purify oneself and the declaration of
‘Bismillah’ before one starts the ‘ghusl’, there is absolutely no evidence in
the authentic and established Sunnah that the Messenger of Allah (saws) would
make any specific supplications during the ‘ghusl’ itself.
Whatever written of Truth and benefit is only due to
Allah’s Assistance and Guidance, and whatever of error is of me alone. Allah Alone Knows Best and He is the Only
Source of Strength.
